worst movies on this topic
26 April 2004 | by zzmaleSee all my reviews

Based on 'Journey to the West', one of the three famous ancient Chinese novel written in the Ming dynasty, this movie is definitely not good as other.

In fact, it is the worst, mostly because of time. Obviously, the movie cannot be several hours long, but each single episode in the ancient novel can be made into a movie of two hours.

The film crew tries to cover as much episodes/chapters as possible, while in reality, such attempt if futile, and as a result, the quality obviously suffered greatly, and when compared with other movies that only describe a single chapter in the novel, the failure of this movie is obvious.
